This month’s cartoon: Pentagon chicken vs. Washington Commanders

“What’s in a name?”
(Cartoon by Mike Mount)

The contest to name the “Pentagon chicken” produced plenty of great would-be monickers: Chick Cheney, Col. Sanders, Joint Cheeps of Staff.

Ultimately, the name Henny Penny was chosen, and the chicken found up being serenaded on national TV by Jimmy Fallon.

Contrast that with the reaction to Washington’s NFL team and its new name, the Washington Commanders, and you have the basis of the latest local Mike Mount cartoon.
